Central Region Work Update – January 2023

Last year, was a fantastic year for our members and contractors alike. This year is looking to be promising, as contractors are starting to put members to work on capital and balance of plant projects.

Recruitment has been in full swing, and we are looking to add new members to our team. New members in the Central Region are needed as more working opportunities present themselves.

Millwrights are in high demand across our eleven-state footprint as we have a tremendous amount of work. If you know someone who is mechanically inclined, put them in contact with a local business agent or have them fill out a new member application on the SSMRC website.

Please reach out to your business agent and put yourself on the out-of-work list if you are available for work. If you are traveling outside of your home local jurisdiction for work, check in with the local that has jurisdiction where you are procuring employment.

Please take advantage of all opportunities to enhance your skill sets (forklift, ariel lifting, welding and rigging) through the training department
